Crank-down Frame

Recommended Posts

FatFishie

Does anyone know someone that welds Crank-down Fish house Frames? My neighbor at the cabin and I would like to build one over the summer.. I know its a little pre-mature to think about this now, but a guy comes up with millions of ideas while he is sitting in the shanty on cold days!

I have an ice castle that spends most of its time on lake minnetonka, and it is putting a lot of wear and tear on it buy pulling it back and forth so many times.. it would be nice just to have another ice house at the cabin. The frame is all we need, so we can custom build the rest. A 14' would be nice. Anyone have one they want to sell or build?

thanks.

I am acutally looking for a new frame so I can build another house. I would like to have one that is going to be used just for the cabin and a few other lakes around Brainerd..

Like I had mentioned, all I need is a frame. I want to custom build the rest. I am not the best welder in the world, so i thought it would be a good Idea to have someone that is experienced to build the frame. Thanks! smile.gif

Victoria Welding and Repair shop right on HWY 5 in Victoria across from the DQ. He repaired a house for me last year and was building a couple when I was in there. He also had a couple of frames in his yard and said he will build one to any stage you want. Straight frame, frame and shell or complete. he was really reasonable on price. He also turned my boat trailer into a swing tongue. He does very nice work.

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.

      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.

      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.

      Funny, I first heard of this on LOTW also about 8-10 years ago.  They're tasty but honestly I often forget about doing it.

      Finally warm weather has arrived in Minnesota and I decided to hit the river for the first trip of the year in the Kayak. Felt good to be on open water after a very long winter. Even managed a few rough fish to get warmed up for the year!  Video: https://youtu.be/0gYDiOVH3As

      Spending some time in the turkey blind as it’s on solid ground. Had some jakes behind me but they don’t want to play. It’s okay as the have a free pass for now. In a couple weeks they will not have a free pass. If they would have come out I would have taken some photos. Lots for noise as everything is excited by the warm weather.
